Kids are stronger together!
As part of its #KidsTogether initiative, Nickelodeon will present a new hour-long TV special this coming Monday, March 30. Hosted by Frozen star Kristen Bell, the special is all about how kids are coping during this strange time.
The #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall special will offer a kids-eye view of life today amid COVID-19. The presentation will address many kids’ questions and concerns, offer tips from medical experts, and share first-person accounts of kids and families practicing social distancing.
“It’s so important to remember that we are all in this together, and our kids and loved ones need outlets to help them process and understand what’s going on and, most importantly, still feel connected,” Bell said in a statement. “I hope kids and families come away from this special feeling a little more comfortable and that they enjoy some much-needed moments of humor during this difficult time.”
The taped special will feature Bell and remote, recorded messages other celebrities. Singer Alicia Keys will perform during the taped special, and California Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, Charl D’Amelio, Josh Gad, Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, Ciara and Russell Wilson, among others, will also share their own recorded messages.
The special premieres at 7 p.m. EST across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, and NickToons channels and will be available to watch later on Nick On Demand, YouTube, the Nick app, and the Nick Pluto channel for domestic and international audiences.
